We have a clear commitment to sustainable development. Our Sustainability targets, are consistent with our overall strategy, but seek to move our performance forward in a number of important areas relevant to our Sustainability agenda. Our targets and progress are shown on page 7 of this Report. Glass manufacture is energy-intensive, but our products make a major contribution to energy conservation and power generation. We are working hard to reduce our waste, to minimize embodied energy and carbon in our manufacturing and to improve the energy-saving capabilities of our products during their life cycle.
